Metascore®Universal acclaim Based on a weighted average of all critic review scores.
A sample of reviews from critics across the country.
A true-life adventure that turns into a one-man disaster movie - and the darker it gets, the more enthralling it becomes.

Only a truly visionary filmmaker could take a story largely set in a cramped canyon and give it a sense of openness and hope.
All of the key creative personnel contribute to the movie's nail-biting tension and unexpectedly moving finale. Jon Harris's editing is matchless, and Rahman's score effectively heightens the emotion. Ultimately, however, it is the talents of Boyle and Franco that sock this movie home.
It's exciting, stirring, often funny, sometimes lyrical and unusually thoughtful. And, with that one egregious exception, genuinely pleasurable.
